About this event
Discover GOUROUNSI traditional dancing, and workout your body to the beats of African rhythems in this free of charge masterclass.
GOUROUNSI is a warrior dance of the Gourounsi people, who live in the south of Burkina Faso and in the north of Ghana. In ancient times this dance was a prerogative of the soldiers protecting the physical integrity of the territory. For this very reason, it’s a dance to perform with strength and energy, as well as with a touch of arrogance – as a matter of fact, it represents an imaginary “face to face” with the enemy to scare it before the fight.
Nowadays, this dance has become very popular and it is performed during cultural and social gatherings.
The dance is accompanied by the galvanizing rhythm of musicians playing traditional instruments.
